119 - Specular Reflection

In this video Paul Andersen explains how light that is perfectly reflected creates specular reflection. The angle of the incident ray is equal to the angle of the reflected ray. Specular reflection is also known as mirror-like reflection. If the reflecting surface is irregular it will create diffuse, rather than specular, reflection.
